New Delhi: BJP today gave enough indications that it was not averse to the outside support offered by NCP and made it clear that it will be going ahead with formation of government in Maharashtra.

"As per norms of democracy, the largest party has the right to form the government. BJP will be forming the government in Maharashtra," party President Amit Shah told a press conference here as the results showed that BJP will fall short of a majority.

Virtually ignoring its erstwhile ally Shiv Sena, he said that the NCP has on its own offered "unconditional outside" support and "does not want to join the government".

Asked specifically what would the BJP do on NCP's offer, Shah said, "Just wait for sometime. The (BJP) Parliamentary Board will be meeting shortly."
